New Tone… CBS Political Director Tells Obama to “Go for the Throat” and “Pulverize” Republicans

There was a time when the Democrat-media complex would at least try to cover up their hatred for Republicans. Those days are over. Now they’re openly calling for destruction of the conservative movement in America. They don’t even pretend to be impartial witnesses of the news. They’re Obama fanatics and hate Republicans, period.

** Today a top columnist at The Washington Post compared Republicans to suicide bombers.
** Newsweek today claimed Obama’s second term will be like “The Second Coming” of Christ.
** A CNN “reporter” this week admitted to sending love notes to Barack Obama every day for four years.

And, then there’s this…
CBS News political director John Dickerson wrote a piece this week calling on Obama to “go for the throat” of the Republicans.
NewsBusters reports:

“The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”

So astonishingly wrote CBS News political director John Dickerson at Slate Friday evening in a piece astonishingly titled “Go for the Throat! Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party.”

Dickerson is no longer interested in Obama trying bipartisanship in his second term – as if that’s what the President did in his first.

“Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize,” Dickerson wrote. “Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.”

    Obama is going to do what he is going to do, and his cheerleaders in the liberal media will goad him on. The real question is will these spineless Republicans allow themselves to be “pulverized” like a bunch of wimps, or will they stand and fight, and fight hard! As long as Republicans stay on the defense, they lose. Republicans must go on the offense and take the fight to Obama. Republicans need to launch a full legislative assault on Obama and the derelict Democrats in the Senate. Republicans need to become the responsible party and paint Obama and the Democrats as obstructionists as the nation melts before our very eyes. And, take a tip from Newt Gingrich and eviscerate the liberal media in public. These spineless Republicans need to realize that the liberal media will hate them and disparage them no matter what they do, so it is time to go on the attack and trust the American people will slowly but surely understand who is trying to get things done for the benefit of the nation. Republicans, rise up and fight, otherwise you will deserve the scrap heap history if you cave to Obama. History will not be kind to Obama, and will be even harsher on the Republicans for not standing up when the Republic was at stake.

    Hmmm, really, CBS’ John Dickerson must be off his meds and needs to be hospitalized; he has delusions that people care about what he thinks.

    He obviously didn’t get the memo that more and more Americans are turning away from the alphabet stations and their talkative faulty-thinking heads. Seems we don’t like Communists pushing the subversion of Democratic principles and Orwellian 1984 group think.

    I guess he didn’t get the recent news from NBC that makes thinking people believe that the POTUS and his people again manipulated events to create their nightmare of a Socialist Fascist hellhole on our shores.


    The Big Sandy Hook Newtown Lie: No Children Killed with Rifles – No Rifles in School – Lanza Used Handguns
    January 19, 2013
    By Maggie

    NBC is reporting that Adam Lanza did not take rifles inside Sandy Hook Elementary School. He did not use a rifle, deemed an “assault weapon” by the administration and media to kill and wound. To repeat, no rifles were found inside the school. Lanza reportedly had four handguns with him. How many of those handguns were used in the killings isn’t known, or at least not included in this report.

    …The report that an ‘AR-15-style’ assault rifle was in the trunk of murderer Adam Lanza’s car is up for dispute as well. If one examines footage from police breaking into Lanza’s car, one sees police clearing a round from a “long gun of some type” that does not appear to be ‘AR-15 style’ or ‘assault-style.’

    Whether or not the mainstream media are intentionally spreading disinformation about the Sandy Hook elementary tragedy, there is one thing for certain: not only are violent crime rates at a modern low and going down, but only 323 homicides were committed by rifles in 2011. That includes hunting rifles, assault rifles, military style rifles, semi-automatic rifles and whatever label one comes up with, regardless of magazine or clip capacity.

    In a nation of 311 million people, the odds of being killed by a rifle is about one homicide per million people, which is far less than the odds of being murdered by a blunt object.

    Partial snippet transcription of the NBC Today Show video added as an UPDATE at 1pm CST 1-19-13, Pete Williams, NBC News Justice Correspondent, introduced by Matt Lauer, airing on December 15, 2012:

    There is some new information this morning from a couple of Federal officials and State officials. They say now that there were actually four handguns recovered inside the school, not just two as we were initially told. Four handguns and apparently only handguns that were taken into the school…

    He!! as much as John Boehner caves to the President, he ought apply for membership in a Miners Union. I have a bad feeling that gun rights and a lot of others are going to take a major hit under his leadership. A boner with no stones is not a recipe for success, so until we get a leader as effective as that witch Piglosi we are fighting with one hand tied.

  • American Woman

    I agree, Rock.

    The Progressive are getting smug now, because the RINO leadership seems to be stuck on “stupid & cowardly”, which always leads to their “whimpering & rolling over”.

    Wonder what the RINOs plan to do about the latest Progressive attack on the unborn, coming as is the norm from a Democrat that calls himself a Catholic:

    Albany NY — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is flexing his political muscle to give abortion advocates their biggest state victory in 40 years since Roe v. Wade: a sweeping expansion of abortion law that, if enforced, could put Catholic hospitals and many state-funded ministries out of business.

    Cuomo’s approval ratings have topped 70% for six straight months, and, with just two years in office, he has already pushed through controversial same-sex “marriage” legislation and the most restrictive gun-control law in the nation.

    Cuomo, who is Catholic, now is setting his sights on succeeding where governors for the past six years have failed: passing the proposed Reproductive Health Care Act. […]

    “Gov. Cuomo’s bill elevates abortion to a fundamental right and says New York state can’t discriminate on abortion in benefits or services or anything else it provides,” said Kathleen Gallagher, the conference’s director of pro-life activities.

    Cuomo’s legislation, she said, would make illegal abortion restrictions, such as parental-notification laws, informed-consent laws, restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion bans of any kind. […]

    Cuomo’s bill removes criminal penalties for third-trimester abortions after 24 weeks by adding a broad health exception. Current state law allows such late-term abortions if there is a danger to the mother’s life.

    A lot of Leftists say they’re sick of conservatives constantly whining about Left-wing bias in the media. Welp, we wouldn’t be complaining about it so much if such accusations didn’t have such a strong basis in reality. How would the Left feel if they had to deal with conservatives controlling the media, academia, the entertainment indhustry, the NGOs, the governemnt, unions, etc?

    Frankly, it’s a miracle that a Republican can ever win an election when they’re going up against such a hostile power structure. Because it’s not just the American media who hates conservatives; media outlets in virtually every country in the world hate Republicans. Who do you think the BBC supports? Democrats or Republicans? McCain or Obama? Romney or Obama? Gee. That’s a hard one…

    Unfortunately, that miracle seems to be coming to an end now that the Left has finally accomplished their generational demographic schemes of making Whites – the traditional base of the Republican Party – a minority in America.

    And I was always shocked to see that roughly 40% of Americans consider themselves conservatives and only 20% consider themselves liberals. It duped me into having faith that the American people were simply immune to the constant brainwashing from the Left. But that appears to have been a fatal miscalculation because the supposedly conservative leaning independents are actually increasingly liberal leaning; as evidenced by the legalization of weed and gay marriage for example…

    It looks like the “progressives” are finally seeing the fruits of their decades of labor in converting America – the last real bastion of genuine conservatism in Western Civilization – into a declining socialist state. Congrats on committing civilizational suicide libtards…

  • Rock

    American Woman, its stunning the blatant hypocrisy the Left indulges in, 20 children killed by a mad man and all Americans should forfeit their 2nd. Amendment Rights, over 32 hundred babies killed daily (per the CDC) and the left doesn’t event yawn.

  • Look-Out

    This Dickerson dude, along with the lovely Ms. Fudge:

    “…if you think you are going to have anything bipartisan, you need to think again. It is not happening.”

    are getting Barry’s message out.

  • this is another objective member of the media. when conservatives say the media is a wing of the government of course they are delusional. how long are people going to believe they are hearing news instead of propaganda.

  • Rock

    Got to wonder how many times boner needs to get his a$$ kicked before he understands that Obama and the Dems have no intentions of passing a budget or living within the the Nations means. his choice seems easy enough, go down fighting or just go down.

  • Highlander

    Don’t be so sure Marsh …. there appears to be a backlash brewing. I see signs of it in many places. Yes, conservatism in general is on the ropes, but Obama’s assault on the second amendment has grabbed the attention of a LOT of moderates and even some of the harder left-leaning among us. Their hatred for the GOP runs deep, but it isn’t without limits, and they are beginning to recognize that power grabs like this probably aren’t going to be limited to the second amendment. Turning a blind eye now would put the entire Constitution at risk, and they know it. It really pains them to say it, but they know what Obama is doing is wrong.

    Time will tell just how much support we will get from the left, but my gut tells me that Obama has really overstepped his bounds. He’s stirred up a hornet’s nest of opposition to his gun control agenda, and he’s going to have a tough time ramming any significant changes in policy down our throats, now that he has his own people questioning his actions…

    The current crop of Republicans plan to take the route of least resistance. Stand with me and others and DO NOT let them do it.Hold their feet to the fire apply the pressure get others to join in on holding their feet to the fire. Make sure they know they have more to lose by caving then by holding firm.

    “The president can stir up these fights by poking the fear among Republicans that the party is becoming defined by its most extreme elements,…

    Ha ha ha, anyone that thinks that honest conservatives are “extreme” are no conservatives themselves.

    …which will in turn provoke fear among the most faithful conservatives that weak-willed conservatives are bending to the popular mood,…”

    No fear here. If weak-minded Republicans want to embrace Democrats’ agenda in even the tiniest way, they’re free to do so. I don’t care what happens anymore. If the Republican Party is determined to destroy itself, then it should do so sooner rather than later.

    Hey let’s not forget who started all these violent and hateful threats disguised as random stuff. Sarah Palin had a cursor on a map. And, it was during a campaign. She bought clothes and wore them.

    #16… Damn right. This guy’s just saying the same thing as Rush Limbaugh only from the left side of the aisle. The GOP deserves “disarray”. It’s a band of liars and cowards. I hope they disappear as you said “sooner rather than later”.

    The truth is the Republican Establishment doesn’t have it within them to pick the type of candidates Conservatives want. They have more in common with the Progressives.

    Example, the Republicans Party in Florida under a Republican Governor helped push Rep West out of his District with the kind of gerrymandering practiced in Chicago.

    Another good example to make this point can be found in the former Republican Florida Governor, who in December became a Democrat because he supports Obama.

    The story reads like this:

    Former Governor Charlie Crist Switches To Democrat
    December 8, 2012 12:37 PM
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBS Miami/AP)

    — After months of speculation, former Florida Gov. Charlie Christ ended it all Friday night by tweeting, “Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @Barack Obama!”

    The tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and his wife Carole as he held up a Florida voter registration application.

    Crist was elected the state’s chief executive as a Republican and then ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate as an independent.

    Crist’s Twitter announcement fanned speculation that he would seek to regain his old job from Republican Gov. Rick Scott in 2014.

    Scott refused to discuss Crist after speaking to party leaders Saturday, saying he’s focused on doing his job.

    The Tampa Bay Times reports that Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at the White House. President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump.

    “I’ve had friends for years tell me, ‘You know Charlie, you’re a Democrat and you don’t know it,’” Crist told the newspaper Friday night.

    He cited the Republican Party’s shift to the right on a range of issues, including immigration, education and the environment.

    Crist, 56, spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., that nominated Obama for a second term and campaigned for his re-election.

    It feels like the GOP is trying to minimize the damage and appear somewhat cooperative so they don’t get destroyed in the mid-terms…and Obama knows that he needs that majority back. That’s why he hasn’t stopped campaigning…and won’t stop for another 2 years.

    What’s wrong?

    I only want your money and medical records so I can take your guns? It’s a clever scam.

    Who cares about patient rights? I don’t! I hope I can bury the pubs.

    [Dr. Breggin MD]

    “What the President now permits with his orders will soon be codified into law. Doctors and other health care providers will be burdened with spy duties, gathering information on gun possession and reporting anyone suspected by them of being potentially violent.

    “The following can easily happen in psychotherapy and has happened to me on several occasions. A patient is suicidal, so you naturally ask if they have access to a gun. In one case, the patient actually gave me his gun, which I gave to the police, and he did not commit suicide. On another occasion, a very suicidal patient, following my urging to dispose of his gun, dismantled and destroyed his weapon. Commonly families of suicidal patients are asked to remove guns from the home of patients struggling with suicidal or violent feelings.

    “Now imagine this alternative scenario: A patient has a gun, and is suicidal, but is afraid to tell his therapist for fear the therapist will write it down or worse, report him to the authorities. He keeps the existence of the gun a secret, never gets to discuss it, which creates a much greater possibility that he will end up shooting himself.

    #23 Chris: You are the first person/pundit/news source who I have read that absolutely NAILS why Obama continues to campaign. He NEEDS the House and Senate in Democrat hands so he can finish up what he started. Hell, if they get both houses of Congress back, maybe they’ll figure out a way for him to continue to be president (for life). I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the plan.

    So the media is calling for ONE PARTY RULE. Would that not be a Dictatorship? The Republicans who are supposed to be pulverized — is that just elected Republicans or also those who vote Republican as well? Seems elected Republicans have bigger problems than tax hikes — they need to save the Constitution and the two party system.
